As software testing evolves, model based testing has become an integral part of modern test automation in which test cases are derived from model describing the functional aspects of the system under test. In the recent years, model based testing has been gaining pace in various technical organizations, for its ability to detect memory leaks and conflicts that could otherwise cause a software to crash. In addition, model based testing is capable to execute different tests on multiple machines and has been proven to be a time-saving and quality testing approach. Rising demand and sales of software products is likely to have a significant influence on the growth of model based testing market.

Model Based Testing Market Dynamics
Model based testing market is likely to witness a steady growth in the coming years, on the back of rise in the demand for advanced software based testing techniques along with proliferating information technology (IT) industry in various regions across the globe. Manual testing procedures are getting out-of-date as they failed to keep up with the complex structure of dependencies in system under test. Moreover, growing need to automate test design and to accelerate testing for financial service applications will continue to fuel the growth of model based testing market.
Model-based approach not only improves the construction of reliable software but also help enhance efficiency of the development process and quality of the developed product. This is considered to be a key factor driving the global expansion of model based testing market.
While model based testing has gained widespread acceptance for its efficiency in software testing and development, lack of skilled testers and difficulty in understanding the model due to its complex nature remains a key challenge restricting the growth of model based testing market.
Model Based Testing Market Players Eye Lucrative Opportunities in Asia Pacific
While presence of world’s leading tech companies is boosting the adoption of model based testing in developed nations of North America and Europe, key players are focusing on improving their foothold in emerging economies of Asia Pacific. Strong automotive sectors along with expanding IT industry in these regions that has significantly increased the need for software testing are likely to strengthen the growth of model based testing market in Asia Pacific.
